If your child is not studying well, you can still be happy. If your child is not doing her exams well, you can still be happy. But that is not the case when child is sick. More than the children, parents become mentally upset when their children are sick.
When they grow up, they can take care of themselves. But in their childhood, we are responsible to keep them healthy.
When I was 8 years old, I suffered from jaundice. I don't know whether vaccination for jaundice was available at that time. My sister was less than one year old at that time. The doctor told my parents to admit me in the hospital. As my sister was a baby, we could not leave her in relatives house also. My parents took her also to the hospital. My parents put a cradle in the room for her. I had to be there for 1 week. I still remember how difficult the time was for the entire family. Only after I got cured, my family was back to normal state. But vaccines are available for jaundice nowadays.
Science has developed a lot and new vaccines have been found. But the germs are also getting stronger day by day. Diseases like Dengue, Ebola are threatening the world. So, it is important for us to make our children more immune.
